"I made new friends over the summer and got to hang out with them 4 days out of the week for a whole summer which was probably my favorite part. And we had such a great boss that made work fun and enjoyable even when it was almost 100 degrees out. I also loved learning about how to build mountain bike trails. "

"Working with The Nature Connection has been a wholly pleasant experience. I first applied because I wanted a job so I could have spending money, what I got was the money and more valuably a community. I've learned so much about nature, like how to tie different knots and cool survival tips, not to mention the indescribable joy of seeing kids learn and grow with me. Everyone I met was accepting and kind, in a world where just living felt scary, I always felt welcomed and appreciated at The Nature Connection."

"I really enjoyed my experience working at the Nature Connection because I got paid to do fun things outdoors, things like paddle boarding, biking, and hiking are all things I enjoy and I got paid doing them."
